    How can I prevent Central Serous Retinopathy?

    I was diagnosed with Central Serous Retinopathy. This is the 5th time I got it during the last 10 years (I am 59).

    I am concerned about what am I doing wrong that it causes to come back.

    All I know is that it happened previously when I was doing home renovation.
    This time I did some medium intense exercise at the gymnasium (treadmill up hill). Please advise.

    Central serous retinopathy may be associated with stress, steroid use, obstructive sleep apnoea.

    Do you snore?

    Do you feel tired during the day?

    Overnight sleep clinic results may confirm the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

    As well as central serous retinopathy, untreated OSA may be associated with higher blood pressure. Hence, increased risk of stroke or heart attack.
